Dink in a Box: Shannon Gerard!
From the inimitable Shannon Gerard, past Lickety Split contributor and all-around fascinating person:
I know you know at least one person who would love a Boob for Christmas!
Nothing tells that special mohel in your life how much you appreciate them more than a Dink for Hanukkah!
And to quote the indefatigable Justin Timberlake: "Kwanzza. Dink in a box."
There are three-- yes THREE-- chances in the next two weeks for you to make these holiday dreams come true.
On Saturday December 1st (this weekend!), I'll be taking part in CITY OF CRAFT-- a new event being held this year in the Theatre Centre at 1087 Queen Street West. That's the basement of the Great Hall at Queen and Dovercourt. The event runs from 11AM til 8PM. There are over 60 vendors selling handmade, locally produced crafty goodness. There are workshops and demos happening all day (I'm teaching folks how to crochet their very own dinky finger puppets between 1 and 2PM) and admission is totally free!

On Sunday December 2nd (the very next day), I'll be at the OCAD BOOK ARTS FAIR. 100 McCaul Street on the second floor. 11AM til 5PM. More handmade heaven, but this time with an emphasis on books and prints. There are also some amazing deals on letterpress paraphernalia, papermaking supplies, and book related ephemera.

The next weekend, Saturday December 8th and Sunday December 9th-- there are two parties happening at ART METROPOLE as part of their annual GIFTS BY ARTISTS show and sale. On both Saturday and Sunday between 2PM and 5PM, you can stop by Art Met-- 788 King Street West-- for a drink and dink, a boozy booby, and first dibs on some pretty amazing multiples and artists books they'll have for sale. The sale runs til January 5th.

Consider supporting local artists and buying handmade this year. If you can't make it out to these events, or if you are interested in taking a peek at some of the stuff I've been making lately, check out my ETSY SHOP:
Etsy is the most amazing international online marketplace for all things handmade.
Seasonal Joy and Love from me to you!
